Summer life

“Instructions for living a life:

Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
-Mary Oliver

Yes, attention, astonishment – but I’ve had trouble with the “tell about it” part. My blog has languished, as I prepare for Marian’s visit, the Elderwoman series, and this month’s SWW gathering. It didn’t help that the modem died over the holiday weekend (it has been replaced). My response to being without internet access for three days is worthy of a separate post.

But it’s been a wonderful summer. I attended a college reunion where we wandered by kayak and canoe on the Delaware River; had bike riding adventures with cousins Mia and Keir; and visited son Ben in NYC. His new apartment is near the Chrysler building; the photo of it was taken from the roof of his building.

Yesterday I discovered a video about Star Island, where I spent a week in July/August. It shows the stark beauty and rich history of the place.

There is more, always, but it will have to wait; work beckons.

To all lurkers and silent types

A blog I read this morning sparked the idea (thank you, Meadowsweet & Myrrh) to ask the many readers  and visitors of this blog to come out of hiding. I invite you to leave a comment, say hello — even if you’re just a lurker, even if you’ve never left a comment here before, why not share a little bit about yourself?

1) Tell me about yourself. Who are you?  What was it that drew you to this blog? What does its title, Sanctuary Without Walls, mean to you? Have you visited the sanctuarywithoutwalls.org site?

2) Tell someone else about this blog.  Send them a link to your favorite post, and let’s see what they say!

3.) Visit again, to see who has made an appearance here!
